Introduction to Our Library

Welcome to the Mark O. Hatfield Library! 

As you’ll discover, the Hatfield Library is a treasured gem on campus.  It is centrally located on campus, and it is a popular hangout place for group study sessions on the first floor and quiet study areas on the second floor.

Starting August 31st, the library will be open regularly throughout the school year from 7:45 a.m. to 2 a.m. Monday through Thursday, and closes early on Fridays at 9 p.m.  During the weekends, the building is open 10 a.m. to 9 p.m. on Saturdays and 10 a.m. to 2 a.m. on Sundays.  The building is officially closed to the general public at 9 p.m. every night.  To view our current calendar, click here.

We also offer help with your research through individual consultations with librarians (set up an appointment here), online chat, and in-person help at the reference desk in the library (M-Th 10 a.m-9 p.m., Fri 10-4 p.m., Sun 3-5, 6-9 p.m.).  The hours for our Archives and Special Collections are 9 -12 p.m., 1-4 p.m.

To learn about some of the most essential services and resources we offer, visit our Welcome Students Page.  We’re really excited about the new academic year, and our staff are all looking forward to working with you!
